Treatments for Discolored Teeth

Dr. Catanzano provides cosmetic dental options that address tooth staining and discoloration. Learn more about your options below.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option that can be color-matched to teeth for a more natural-looking restoration. During treatment, our dentist will take dental impressions your teeth so that the veneers will fit on them properly. Then, we will send the specifications of your veneer shape and color to a dental lab for fabrication. When the dental veneers are complete, our dentist will clean and polish the surface of your teeth. He will carefully bond the veneers to the teeth. Any final adjustments will be made to ensure that the veneers fit comfortably.

Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a treatment option that can help rebuild the tooth structure and lighten the appearance of teeth by several shades. Using a composite resin that is adhered to and shaped to teeth, tooth bonding can last patients for years with proper dental care. This option is more economical than porcelain veneers and is a great option for patients who want a whiter and brighter smile.

Teeth Whitening

Zoom! teeth whitening is a modern method of professional treatment that effectively brightens teeth by multiple shades. Patients who have tried teeth whitening strips found along with other less effective teeth whitening methods can benefit from Zoom! treatment. Professional teeth whitening is long-lasting, improves tooth health, reverses effects of aging on teeth, brightens teeth, and can help improve your confidence.

Frequent Questions about Stained Teeth

Is white marks on teeth permanent?

In general, your dentist can reverse tooth discoloration. Extrinsic stains are easier to remove than intrinsic stains. White marks on your teeth are extrinsic, so they are easier to remove with teeth whitening treatments.

Can I reverse tooth discoloration?

In general, we can reverse even the most severe cases of tooth discoloration and staining. Teeth whitening can remove surface stains in less than two visits to the office. When stains penetrate the inner layer of enamel, they are significantly harder to remove, so treatment may take more time.

What are the types of tooth discoloration?

There are three different kinds of tooth discoloration: those caused by food and drink (extrinsic), those caused by medications (intrinsic), and those caused by the natural aging process(age-related).
